I like the food particularly given the lack of culinary diversity in Desert Hot Springs. The challenge with this restaurant is the server is the host and probably one of the cooks as well so the service is a bit slow but the food is always good and makes up for the lack of attentiveness. Definitely worth a visit if... More

After a great hike in the monument park we stopped at Thai Palms for lunch. We just spent a month in Thailand and I can honestly say the good here was AUTHENTIC!!! Thai Beef Salad and Red Curry Yummy!!!

It's true that dining options are limited in DHS. We had just gotten into town and were hungry. We were both in the mood for Thai and this place really delivered. The noodle dishes were just bursting with flavor - subtle, though - not at all overwhelming, just the right combination of spices. Service was prompt. We were never rushed... More

Desert Hot Springs has limited dinner options. I tried to find a good one but failed. Very outdated interior and hot inside (wasn't running a/c). Thai salad was strange. Salad rolls without flavor. Pad kee mao with heavy sauce and spicier than 2*. Wine was bad. Dinner price was high.

Husband and I enjoyed the food so much the first time, we went back two nights later! Loved everything we had over the two nights - red curry, chicken Tom yum pumpkin curry, spring rolls. Full of flavor, great prices. A big taste of Thai in the middle of the desert. Will definitely go back.

Yes we went back twice in one weekend, that should tell you how much we enjoyed this local restaurant. Both lovers of spicy food this was up our street. The decor is nothing special but the food is why you are there. Our service was good and the food came out fairly promptly. The curries are excellent and you can... More

Have to admit Desert Hot Springs is a little off the beaten path(part of its charm) so was not expecting to find a good Thai restaurant here. This is it, good Tom Yum and Pad Ti. Place is clean and staff attentive.I would come back as there aren't that many restaurants in DHS.

We visited this restaurant twice because we liked it so much the first night. We had different dishes since my sister likes more hot spice and curries. I had chicken with lots of vegetables one night and the second night I had shrimp with vegetables including ginger. Both times the meals were quickly delivered, fresh, hot, well seasoned and tasty.... More

First one to arrive Sunday. Ordered, a couple of other couples arrived and then the NOISY RUDE birthday party started. OK it wasn't a party but it was really, really loud. Food and service were excellent. I ordered the mixed vegetables and when I finished the salad, the soup, the spring roll and then started on the vegeatbles and rice,... More
